This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit
Productivity a subsidiary of Collabora focusing on LibreOffice support and
services for whom I work.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here. Failing that, there are all manner of interesting things to read on
the LibreOffice Planet news
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
Lie-in, All Saints with H. playing piano nicely; back for a
sermon on The
Riddle of Samson, from the strong came forth sweetness -
another set of singing at home. Lunch with D.
Julie's friend visited afterwards, watched the latest The Chosen episode
together. Out for a nice walk in the evening with J. H. back very late
after looking after her unwell friend.
Poked at bogus key-up emissions from our JS, played
BosWars with E. helped H. with some programming, investigated
buying / building awnings for the back of the house. Built
lots of sheer-stress / bending moment calculations for
aluminium beams of dubious quality. Pleased to see the Indian
building regulations have some good pieces about canopy design
and dimensionless wind design pressure factors to re-use.
E-mail, TDF meetings, call with Tor, mail & admin,
fixed a rare corner-case crasher.
COOL community call, various other calls, Collabora
quarterly management calls.
Sore arm, chat with Tor, internal "dev show & tell"
which was fun, caught up with Simon N. Fixed async save race
hurting CI users.
Into Stevenage for a 2nd Moderna vaccine, catch up with
Kendy, Ash, mail chew. Helped H. with some programming practice
in the evening - nice.
Planning call, good to have Kendy back from vacation.
Plugged away at some security pieces, mended CI.
Continued reading The Children of the Sky to
the babes in the evening in installments, fun.
All Saints, back for lunch, relaxed & slept.
Lots of preparation, house-cleaning with the family, lots of
food cooked & prepared. Had a lovely 18th and 49th (and more)
Birthday party experience with the wider family in the garden, great
to see so many. E. pinged for self-isolation at some stage; bother.
Poked at some code, fixed a silly crasher. H. out
to the Botanical gardens with M&D, lovely to see them.
Calls with Andras, Tor. Day off - into Cambridge with
H. and N. to go canoeing and paddle-boarding with David: good
fun had by all. Back to David's for lunch - lovely.
Home to see some much-loved family passing through.
Catch up call with Pranam; sales call, dug at some
floating patches at some lenght.
Catch-up calls with Tor, Cor, Pranam. Lunch. Amused
to find a Gazebo turned over & banging on our back
door - hmm.
Planning call, helped H. with some hacking / learning
to code pieces.
All Saints, home for a Gordon sermon & more music
with the family. Slugged variously, read The Children of
the Sky to the babes, and watched The Tomorrow War
somewhat disappointed by it.
Got lots of loose ends pulled together; tried to mend some
abysmal plumbing snafu or two un-successfully. Cooked pulled-pork
for the family who even survived eating it. J. out all day training
in children's counselling.
